I've an ongoing project with very tight deadline. I'm allowed to extend project deadline, if required. I've implemented Scrum (sprints) for day-to-day activities.
Issue is - I've some backlog since two weeks, that I couldn't arrange to complete. I must complete project backlog, before I go further with project.
What should be better at this stage, from following options?
- Extend current/next sprint and complete backlog with it. Do sprint allows the same?
- Create a new sprint and add between existing project flow. i.e. Upon completion of current sprint, should I add backlog sprint in between.
- Should I add new resources to team or ask my team for overtime? (I don't think it's better way.)
Any other proper solution for this situation?
